Use Graphing Tool on an iPad
The WebAssign graphing tool lets you graph one or more mathematical elements directly on a set of coordinate axes. Your graph is scored automatically by WebAssign when you submit the assignment for grading. You can answer graphing tool questions in Safari on iPad with iOS 5 or later.
To use the iPad version of the graphing tool, you select objects by tapping object buttons and plot objects on the graph by tapping points in the graphing area.
You can refine and change the properties of any object you plot by using Graph Layers. To view Graph Layers, click the arrows in the upperright corner of the graphing tool or select an object on the graph.
Basic Graphing Tool Tasks
The following table describes how to perform basic graphing tool tasks using the iPad.
Task 
Steps 

Choose an object to graph 
Tap the object. If the object you want to graph is part of a drawer:
Tip An object's button is highlighted in blue when it is selected.

Graph a point 

Graph a line, ray, or line segment 

Graph a circle 

Graph a parabola 

Indicate that no solution exists 

Select an object to change 
When an object is selected, the color of the object changes and Graph Layers expands to show the object's current properties. 
Move an object 
Tip You can also modify an object by changing its points using
Graph Layers.

Reshape an object 

Fill a region of the graph to specify inequality 
Note Making changes to the graph after you add fills will remove them, so
make sure to fill regions last.

Clear a filled region of the graph 

Delete an object 

Delete all objects 

View the answer key  If your instructor has enabled it, you might be able to see the answer
key for a question. This is typically allowed after you have used all of
your submissions or after the due date has passed.
Tap the Show Key button. 
View help for the graphing tool 
Tap Help in the lower left corner of the graphing tool. 
Graph Layers
Graph Layers allows you to modify objects plotted on the graph. You can use Graph Layers to change an object's coordinates, reshape objects, and set endpoints or dashed lines.
The following table describes how to perform graphing tool tasks using Graph Layers.
Task 
Steps 

Open Graph Layers 
Tap the arrows to the upper right of the graph. Tip You can also open Graph Layers by
selecting an object.

Close Graph Layers 
Tap the Graph Layers header. 
View an object's properties 
Tap an object name in Graph Layers. Note This will select the object in the graph. 
Change an object's coordinates 
Note The graphing tool does not accept values that are outside of the displayed coordinate
grid.

Move or reshape an object 

Set an open endpoint for a ray or line segment 

Set a closed endpoint for a ray or line segment 

Set a dashed line style to specify inequality 

Set a solid line style
